The library mentionned in the title was introduced for kde4.5 to store the
code that is common to the oxygen style and the decodation. (while we where
using svn::external before). I really like the change.
Now I noticed that some packagers (Mandriva Cooker at least), made it a
separate rpm (here: liboxygenstyle4-4.5.67-2mdv2011.0).
I think its a very bad idea in my opinion, because I made no attempts to keep
Binary (or even API) compatibility between the two (expecting that the library
will always be part of kdebase/workspace pacakges, and always be build against
matching oxygen style and decoration.
Does anyone know how to advertise for _not_ making a different package with
this part of the code ? Is it the right mailing list to ask ?
Thanks in advance,
